Because I was traveling for part of October, I didn’t get as much knitted this month as I have in month past. If I travel within the United States, I do take knitting with me. However, I didn’t want to risk getting my beloved Bamboo needles and cotton yarn confiscated by TSA.
I did check out the TSA guidelines and the airline guidelines, and both said I could bring my knitting on the plane. Now, we all know TSA’s reputation. All it would have taken was a TSA agent on a power trip or decide he/she liked my needles and yarn and I lose my project.
ANYWAYS…October was Orange Yarn Month for me! Not that I’m complaining, but here’s what I was able to get done this month:
Bernat Blanket Pumpkin Spice (1)
Bernat Freshly Squeezed (11)
Bernat Freshly Squeezed (2)
See? Orange Yarn everywhere! And that was not intentional! I made up the To Be knit order for the baby blankets back in January, and I knit my cotton in the order it is on my Inventory list in my Knitting TN Insert. OCD I know, but there is a reason.
Side tangent: For a few years, I was just buying cotton yarn when it was on clearance, but I couldn’t keep up with knitting all of it. A year ago, I decided to stop buying all cotton yarn I see, unless it was a really REALLY good deal. And I’ve been knitting through my stash. All the Bernat skeins I’ve been working through were bought 3-4 years ago. And any yarn that is bought, gets added to the inventory list. So a ball of Peaches and Cream Light Blue yarn is the most recent purchase (Clearance for $0.50!). So if I don’t buy any more cotton until I’m through with what I have, that ball will be the last cotton ball.
Wow, this is a much longer Monthly Knits post than what I intended. Did that make sense to anyone else?

And since I’ve been asked in past Monthly Knits posts if I sell my stuff on ETSY. Yes, now that craft show season is over, I will be listing everything left on ETSY.

How’s everyone else’s crafting going?
